In order to help foster strong links with Longhurst Group, idverde’s Midlands Development Manager, Nicola Clarke, works alongside our local team to liaise with community groups, engage with the third sector, organise volunteer sessions, discuss how we can assist with community events, and identify opportunities for gaining external funding for local projects.

Meet the Contractor events are carried out to provide an opportunity for residents to meet with idverde’s team face to face, establish points of contact and air any problems they may have. Our local contract manager also routinely meets with Longhurst Group’s residents to answer queries and to identify their aspirations and expectations for the service.

To aid local sustainability, job applications will be encouraged from local residents and an apprentice is employed on the contract.
